Toshiba's flexible display bends to zoom

While most companies are happy to produce flexible displays, Toshiba is going a step further by making use of the bending action to initiate zoom features.

This is really impressive. While most companies are happy to produce flexible displays, Toshiba is going a step further by making use of the bending action to initiate zoom features.

The prototype shown on the Computex show floor is an 8.4-inch 800x600-pixel panel that can be bent to a curvature radius of 50mm (about 2 inches). What's surprising is that this unit has a thin, 0.4mm LED edge light to illuminate the display. We can't wait for the first consumer hardware to sport this unique technology.
